makes 8 servings

8 bacon wrapped filet mignon
1/2 teaspoon black peppercorn
1 teaspoon salt

Onion Relish
4 onions, medium, sliced thin
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In large pan, add onions, salt, and pepper and heat, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes. The onions should be very soft. Reduce heat to low and add sugar. Mix thoroughly and cook for 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in balsamic vinegar. Cook for 30 minutes or until relish becomes dark and has a syrup consistency.

Pre-heat grill to medium high heat. Generously baste each bacon wrapped Filet with vegetable oil & lightly coat with black peppercorn. Place on grill and sear each side for approximately 3 minutes. Remove the Filets from the grill and serve topped with onions.
